The Mystery of MODS
Summary By: Oli Flowers
Mervyn Singer entertains the SMACC crowd with tales of MODS (Multi Organ Dysfunction Syndrome). With videos of Raquel Welch, stories from the Battle of Trafalgar and lessons from evolution, he makes us think about the important physiology underlying critical illness. This lecture precedes the latest SIRS definition and really puts them into context and leads on to the promise of precision medicine.
